You may want to check on this. The place subsides all the time because water pours off the side of the road like a waterfall in winter.

Dear Sirs:
I wanted to alert you to a public safety issue that exists on the pedestrian underpass at Alpine Road and Junipero Serra Blvd. The nature of this hazard, as shown in the attachments, are several large, deep cracks that have developed over time primarily on the right hand side of the "trail" as one heads south. Given that the trail is 8 feet wide, one can easily see just how bad this situation is. It is particularly dangerous for cyclists especially if there is foot or bike traffic in the opposite direction since the cracks run diagonally and are wide enough to trap a wheel, causing loss of control and possibly a crash.

Commuters as well as parents taking their kids for a spin are particularly at risk since it is getting dark earlier and visibility is decreasing as we approach Fall. I suggest it would be a good idea to do something about this sooner rather than later before there is a serious injury accident for which the city might be held liable.

Thank you for your consideration of this matter.

Kind regards,

Gunter Steffen
